Botox injections block certain chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. These injections temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines.
GUMMY SMILE REDUCTION/ LIP FLIP
A gummy smile can make you feel self conscious. It is tough to feel confident with your facial features when you are not confident in your smile. Excess gum tissue, or a gummy smile, can be easily fixed with the use of Botox injections. Botox is used to help relax the muscles in the upper lip that cause the gummy smile look.
FACIAL SLIMMING/ TEETH GRINDING
By injecting Botox directly into the masseter muscle (the large muscle that moves the jaw), the muscle is weakened enough to stop involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. This significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding. This also creates a slimming affect to the face. Results are usually seen in 6 weeks.
HYPERHIDROSIS (EXCESSIVE UNDERARM SWEATING)
Botox—often associated with cosmetic wrinkle reduction—is also a particularly effective treatment for focal hyperhidrosis. Botox injections use botulinum toxin to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Results lasts 6-9 months.
KYBELLA is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness (double chin). Kybella is a substance identical to deoxycholic acid naturally produced in the body that will absorb fat in the double-chin– for good! The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved the nonsurgical treatment for the double-chin and neck fat. 2-4 treatments may be required.
